Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

This is my story!

1. It's Tuesday again? Whew, these weeks fly by. I just happened to have a story for you since its Teapot Tuesday! Lot's of character's lives are shaped by the silly nic names they are given. In the CASE of Detective Red E. TaBloom, his appearance resulted in the nic name Red. I am not sure what Red's real name is but one look at him tells ya that you don't really need to know that! He is a huge, big ole burly type, a big ole lovable teddy bear with the most amazing, thickest, reddest head of hair you have ever seen! Red really wanted to be a cop, catching bad guys, as he knew the sheer size of him would be a huge advantage on the street. But he ended up a detective for two reasons. It's his softer side and a little flower fetish thingy he's got going on that put him at a desk!

2. In the CASE of the Chief of Police, Willy B. Weedin, in part, it's his parents fault for giving him his name. Willy comes from a long line of cops, his dad, grandfather and great grandfather have all been cops. It's what they do! His mother is a Master Gardner and she's tired of worrying about the men in her life so before he was even born, she was reading him gardening books! That was just down right comical to his father. Ain't no way this boy's gonna be a gardner! So, William Ben Weedin was born and before they even got him home, the teasin' began down at the station. His father's co-workers started calling him Willy B. Weedin. They even put a question mark on the end of his name! All his life he's been intent to show them ain't no way he's gonna be weedin'. That is his Mom's gig. But, now he has earned their respect as Chief of Police and life is good. He takes pride in the fact that his house is surrounded, front and back, by the biggest, baddest weeds in the City! He doesn't do any weedin! It's no surprise, since he is the Chief of Police, that the City's weed ordinances are not enforced, at least not at his house! Go figure!

3. Unsolved Mystery: For years and years, a Master Mind Criminial has been planting clean and simple, single one stemmed flowers in Willy's yard. (Some say this Master Mind Criminal is his mom, the Master Mind Gardner!). This has been quite annoying because everyday before work Willy has to pull 'em up, throw 'em in his squad car and enter 'em into evidence. Someday he will get to the bottom of this! Willy doesn't have a clue that the detective in charge of the keys to the evidence room (Detective Red E. TaBloom) has a fetish for flowers and has turned the evidence room into the most glorious, beautiful and unbelievable array of amazing flowers simply by nursing the *evidence* back to life! Everyday, he unlocks the Evidence Room to see if anything is Red E. TaBloom. He has recently begun to sell product out the back door! Yikes! Call Internal Affairs!

4. Meet Pamela Posey, she and Red are a little cozy! She's the Chief's personal assistant and while looking for some paperwork on her desk, Chief Willy found a hand written personal note: Red, it said, Gerber Daisy's about to bloom! Been in the evidence room? We already have a buyer, should we move the price a little higher?

What is Pamela Posey doing with keys to the evidence room? The Daisies are bloomin? They are being sold! What the heck???

Detective Red E. TaBloom!!
Get the keys to the Evidence Room!
If the evidence is bloomin,
I'm gonna be fuming!

Rut roh! What a shame, this mistake by Red's dame! Red's about to be canned, not exactly what he planned! There goes his career, but do not fear. Forget being a cop, he can open a flower shop! Bring clean and simple flowers! And bring them quick! Red's in the evidence room destroying the evidence and once that's done, he'll be out the door, for shore, for shore! He'll be looking to start his new flower shop but where can he get those starter flowers he so desparately needs? He doesn't dare set foot at the scene of the crime as its the Chief's back yard! That's where we come in! Bring starter flowers! They have to be clean and simple, just beginning their life. Nothing too fancy. He has a knack for taking a clean and simple flower and nursing it to glory. So, that's the end of the story!

Oh! And you get extra cookies for bringing another clean and simple flower identical to your clean and simple flower!

In this CASE, this week we are bringing Clean and Simple cards with flowers on them. Nothing too elaborate, no big time embellishments, no extra *stuff*, just clean and simple flower's a bloomin. If you are looking for those extra cookies, check out the Destination Station and jump on board!

This week's destination is Fort Collins, Colorado. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Lindsay, a young 22 year originally diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma when she was 4 months pregnant with her first child. Lindsay is entering a very rough time in her life. She will be going through an entire month of *killer* chemo treatment. After going through chemo while pregnant, her baby was born normal, happy, and healthy and life was looking up! But recently another lump was found and removed and now she is undergoing a bone marrow transplant and will be in a hospital in Denver for an entire month unable to leave the entire time.

This month's destination has a little twist! For more information on that and Lindsay's situation, as well as the address to mail the cards to, please visit Post #230 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is strictly voluntary.

Here is my card as well as the card kits I made for Lindsay.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #149 Challenge Gallery .

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT149 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Friday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send me a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater! If you dont' want to cheat, I am posting a sneak peak on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it sometimes during the weekend before the next Tuesday!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges. Feel free to grab this I survived Teapot Tuesday Badge for your blog!

What a funny story Cindy! Love it. Here is my CAS Flower. I hope it is okay that I also brought a whole BG of flowers!


philsmom 06-06-2011 07:23 PM

Pamela Posey loves her sweet Red
& someday she hopes they'll wed.
When Chief Willy found the note she wrote
she wanted to throw herself in an alligator filled moat.
She felt so awful about her blunder
that she thought and began to wonder. . .
How could she make it up to her dear Red?
She baked him some homemade bread.
Something yummy for his belly slathered with homemade strawberry jelly!
A pot of tea to wash it all down
will turn his frown upside down!

here's my card
Do I have to come in the back door because I didn't bring flowers?

Oh I am so glad mother's daughter remembered the stamp-that also reminded me to include an envelope with the card kit for Lindsay!

hobbydujour 06-06-2011 07:27 PM

Cindy, what a neat idea to create a "kit" to go along with our card to Lindsay! I'm afraid mine isn't too CAS, but I think it will be very easy for Lindsay to work with since I did all the "little stuff" for her. Hope she can spend some pleasurable hours creating cards.


cookiebaker 06-06-2011 07:28 PM

Thought I was gonna be first but my internet slowed me down.

Here are my bloomers for Lindsay

crystaldolphins 06-06-2011 07:41 PM

Here's my card for Lindsay. Hopefully she'll have fun colouring this image - I sure did!

I'll have to come back to the gallery to comment. Long day today and I'm toast! New pic uploaded - getting used to new software!

camerabuff 06-06-2011 07:53 PM

I kinda goofed. I didn't do any of the colors or flower. Opps! Oh, well. It's still a CAS card and I hope Lindsay will like it. Cards for Lindsay, 2011 by camerabuff - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

mother's daughter 06-06-2011 07:53 PM

Here's my card and parts for Lindsay. What a wonderful idea to give Lindsay something to do. Maybe when all is said and done, we will have inspired Lindsay to be a cardmaker!

Guess what I did, I pushed myself to make a CAS card. Don't laugh, this is hard for me. I made Lindsay 2 kits. My card however has nothing at all in common with the teapot. HERE is mine.

vdutchr 06-06-2011 09:07 PM

I am thinking my card might qualify. Karen mention flowers.... My card has flowers and it is sort of a CAS card??? Leave it up to you all....

Oh this brings tears to my eyes. I have not had time to play along lately but will definitely make this a priority. We have a dear friend who was just diagnosed with lymphoma and is undergoing treatments.
She will hold a special place in my prayers.

I am so sorry that I have not yet gotten to the gallery to comment on last week's wonderful cards yet. The end of the year at school just wears me out!

I didn't want to miss the party though - here is my card for this week - Sweet Summer Stem.

Ooooh I was playing around with flowers today and then I read todays challenge. I'm so excited because one of the cards I made fits perfectly. Yay!!!! So here is my:
